Trout just jump in your boat

Ok, now, please, understand, that it's taken me years to find the perfect campsites in Colorado.

Pristine, mountaintop, isolated, 40 minute drive into the nearest town sort of campsites.

I've done a lot of research, studying Trailer Life campground directory, making long distance phone calls to various National Forest regional offices, asking to talk to the person in charge of campgrounds in the areas.

I try to find places that the big rigs can't go.

But sometimes, blind luck just lets us stumble into a drop dead beautiful campsite ... such as the place last year Pam and I found.

We returned again this year ... to the same site ... and stay 9 days and nights.

Unfortunately, I can't tell you where it is ... but I can tell you that you'll know it when you find it.

Trout, I'm told, just jump into your boat. Of course, you can see, there aren't many fishermen ... but that's because few people know where it is.

But we're going back again next year ... and the year after that ... and the year after that.

Still another campsite

In still yet another campsite, tucked off all by itself, oh about 70 miles from that pristine mountain top lake, Pam and I spent anoather 12 days.

I could probably tell you where this one is ... and you'd never find it ... because you have to drive down a rutted forest service road, and pull off between two trees ... and down by a little cascading brook.

Camping's free ... if you can find it!

Now, I've often said our little fiberglass rigs are more like boats, than trailers ...

Well, at one of our campsites ... I'm awfully close to testing out that theory.

At night, with the trailer window's open, the stream just babbles up a storm!

This is the view out the rear window of the trailer, at the campsite:

The back of the trailer literally overhangs the stream!

One of our all time favorite campgrounds was closed last year, for renovations, but also for the National Forest service to clear out the dead trees, from an insect infestation that is destroying alot of Colorado's trees.

Still a beautiful place ... but it will take a few years for the ground cover to return. We returned this year for 9 nights. Lots of good hikes in the area.

This also, is the campground where I had my run in with the generator boys.

Notice the tent on the far right. That's the neighboring campsite, blessedly occupied by tenters now.

Most of our Colorado campgrounds are at altitudes higher than 9,000 feet (2740 metres).

One of the things we enjoy most is hiking ... both below and above tree line.

See if you can spot Pam coming down off a hike higher than 12,000 feet (3660).

Here's the view near the summit of that hike:

Notice we're well above treeline.

Charles,

Had you had a 4000 watt contractor's generator running all night, it would have masked the maddening babble of that stream. :o
